The Masons Arms - Branscombe - 01297 680300 -

Nestling in the heart of Branscombe, one of Britain’s most picturesque villages, is the award winning, 14th Century, The Masons Arms. This charming thatched Inn dates back to 1350 – a cider house turned country pub – and the men who cut the stone for Exeter Cathedral drank here, hence the name.

At The Masons Arms food is a serious business. Head Chef Lee Villiers and his kitchen brigade, pride themselves on sourcing fresh, seasonal and local ingredients. The food successfully combines the classic with the modern and will not disappoint. The cooking is classy yet simple, perfect for a special meal or relaxing lunch.

The extensive menu, accompanied by several daily specials, can be enjoyed in our waiter-serviced (evenings only) Restaurant, cosy Bar area or weather permitting outside in our peaceful village surroundings. If you prefer, we also have our quieter room upstairs, where meals can be enjoyed away from the main bar.

We are open for lunch from 12 midday until 2.15pm and for dinner from 6.30pm until 9pm, but please book in advance to avoid disappointment
